"Our focused communications program has strengthened the company's reputation across the world. The Gold SABRE award for communications validates this approach to engage top tier of media organizations and influencers across the world," said Pradipta Bagchi, Vice President and Global Head, Communications at TCS. "Well planned, innovative communications programs can have significant impact on mind-share when executed properly and the credit for that goes to our committed global team and partners," he added.
"The Executive Leadership category recognizes campaigns that were designed to position or publicize the senior leadership of a company. TCS' focused program to position its new CEO on the world stage clearly stood apart as one of the best thought out and executed campaigns this year," said Paul Holmes, Editor-in-Chief of the Holmes Report.
Towards this objective, TCS had put in place an ambitious global communication and media campaign during September 2009 to March 2010 to introduce the new CEO to the global audience, to maximize visibility for the company and to ensure the success of the transition.
